Just to split hairs, Gimmiv is a trojan, not a worm.  It's just a
keylogger.  It in and of itself does not spread.  I have no idea why the
Threatexpert blogger called it a worm, everyone else calls it a trojan.
 While I do not claim to be an expert, the samples I have seen with my
own eyes are trojans and don't have the ability to spread.

That said, it won't take much for someone to write self-replicating code
exploiting this vulnerability.
